About image


Located in the core of Fairfax County in Virginia, Erae Art Studio has taught art to K-12 students and adults with optimal studio conditions since 2006.

Our goal is to not only teach art, but also enhance our students' concentration and creativity, positively influencing their academic performance. Every year, many of our students from Portfolio Prep are accepted with scholarship to prestigious universities and art colleges under our guidance.

We welcome all who seek to learn about art and express themselves creatively. Join us at our studio!


Erae Art Studio has had safe and successful partial reopening since June 2020 due to our strict guidelines and cooperation from everyone. Let's continue to work hard together to provide a safe learning environment for our students.
